Rower and Olympic Gold medallist 2012 (Team GB) Alex Gregory is backing the campaign:
"Conifers have always been a part of my life. From the early days of climbing in their branches, to the family pilgrimage we took to the Californian giant redwoods. There's something fascinating about the variety of sizes, colours and shapes conifers provide. They really are a feast for the senses. Every garden should have at least one conifer."
Recommended RHS AGM varieties include:
Picea abies 'Acrocona'
Larix decidua 'Puli'
Thuja plicata 'Atrovirens'
Taxus baccata 'Icicle'
